Shawn sent me this book after reading the short from Aldiko. I am an evening reader to relax the mind. This is the foundation stone for a collection I feel compelled to read. The initial story is not over indulgent, it's vivid & an easy read. I have read many an imaginary saga, this is without doubt one of the most rewarding experiences I have had in a long time. Treat yourself, you're worth it.
Wow and Wow again... This is book one and I am waiting with bated breathe for the next one to come out. This book made me laugh out loud, cry, and hold my breathe. Wonderfully written and very descriptive.
What a wonderful BIG story this was. A thoroughly enjoyable fantasy with so much to recommend it. Action, adventure, drama, magic and great love. I particularly liked the mystical relationship between Melody and Yaeko. And Yaeko... without giving too much away, I'll just say her story is very moving. The characters are fully developed, with human frailties and human strengths. Like me, I know that you will love them all.( I have to single out The Healer Luis, though, just because of how often I found myself smiling and nodding at his political observations.) Another point I'd make it that this book is appropriate and enjoyable for all ages. Do yourself a favor and get this one.
